When I teach a beginning goldwork class students don't finish a hard day's work with yards and yards of embroidery!! Instead they have a triangle of couched work in passing (hopefully with beautifully turned corners), a pile of chips (cut from bright check), and a fuzzy worm striped with perfectly cut and layed smooth and checked purls. While in Geneva a few years ago MarthaJeanne Barton suggested all the students gather their triangles (in hoop) together for a photo session. We've continued the tradition in goldwork classes thereafter in Olympia and Chicago.
